Sucre, located at 3025 Magazine Street in New Orleans' Garden District, boasts a modern trendy facade with an ice-cream parlor atmosphere, the exception being that macarons, truffles, real gelato, and sorbets can also be consumed at one's pleasure. Founded by Joel Dondis (owner of Joel Catering and Event Planning) in April of 2007, Sucre is a getaway to French desserts and may very well be the best place to stop for a sweeter than sweet tooth. Open from 9am-10pm daily, Sucre offers pastries for breakfast and can bea a perfect late night stop off for the final elegant touch to a whimsical date night.
Desserts are plated and garnished in the most fabulous manner as if you were dining at a five-star restaurant in Paris. "Sucre" means "sugar" in French, and plenty of sugar can be found in their French macarons filled with cream or mousseline. If you have never had the pleasure of experiencing a macaron, you might envision an upscale, fluffy cream-centered Oreo available in a rainbow of colors and a spectrum of exotic flavors.
